Any good seamstress will be able to alter it without compromising the design. I wouldn’t trust buying a dress that was too small.

They are professionals I personally think it’s best to order bigger and have the dress altered to fit you. They know what they are doing and they won’t ruin your dress

Always order for your biggest measurement. You can alter the bust down pretty easily from an 8 to a 6ish

I have the same issue: I’m very hourglass shaped so I’m a 6 on the waist, 8 bust and 8-10 hips. My seamstress told me to always order the 10 and they’ll pull it in everywhere else to make it fit absolutely perfectly. I say stick with the 8 and get it altered down rather than risk trying to upsize.

jayy88 :  My dress was brought in several inches in the bust. Very intricate beadwork and it looked perfect. Have faith in your seamstress.

I haven’t had my dress altered yet but I agree that it makes sense to get it in a bigger size and have it taken in! That way it will fit perfectly in the end. My dress is a size 10 because I need room in the bust, but I will have it taken in considerably everywhere else (I’m closer to a 6 as well). Don’t worry 🙂
